    The job offer finally materialized, at a higher level/pay than I was expecting. Chances I regret buying a house somewhere off 495 in 2021? Prices seem absurdly bubbly at the moment.

    Grats.
    If your plan is to stay for 10+ years, then no, I do not think you will regret.
    At least the rates are stupid low.

    Re: Moving to Wilmington MA Area

    prices seem bubbly but is the selling price of your current house also high?

    low inventory right now on 495 belt, really low

    we are just watching and waiting for the right one. but generally i dont think its excessively bubbly maybe the 800k house last year in dec is now 830? but i think that goes for all housing in general around boston its been just going up in and out of 495

    Billerica/ burlington have some nice gems if you like it and yor wants are met location/ school/ land etc

    you will only regret it if you buy an old shithouse that constantly needs work. the area has almost everything you could want in a traditional suburbia. 20 years from now we'll be seeing costal cities flood and houses in this area will just cost more.

    If you want I have a realtor I do trust. she has her minuses but the bottom line is that she'll get a good deal and knows the areas very well.

    Appreciate the offer. I have to use a company appointed realtor to get the full relocation benefits though.

    Best of luck, dude. I'm in a similar boat... been looking in the general 495/90 area for quite some time now... nearly a year & a half. I regret not buying sooner because the market has been steadily getting worse and more competitive over the past 12 months.

    If you'll be working in Wilmington, the Groton area is awesome. My brother lives there & loves it. If it weren't so far from Newton where my girlfriend works that would be one of the (many) other areas we'd be looking at.

    Ya, my initial reaction was sticker shock, now I'm realizing there is no inventory either. Hoping I can drag things out a little bit so we aren't shopping until April.

    you should have gotten our house. I know it was a bit futher than what you wanted, but the price was right and traffic doesnt exist any more.

    FYI... If anyone is selling in the following areas I'd be interested before it gets put on market.

    Andover, N. Andover, Reading, N reading, Chelsmford, Westford, Littleton, Groton, Sudbury, Boxborough, Bedford, Acton, Carlisle
    Even Wilmington ( where I live now)


    Shoot me a pm

    you should add south and east lowell. anything south of the river and bordering one of those towns is decent.
